USB 2.0 RS-232 Serial Adapter
With LED Indicators
This USB 2.0 RS-232 Serial Adapter is the easiest way to add a serial port to your computer. Newer computers today are unequipped to support peripherals requiring a serial RS-232 connection because they lack serial ports; this affects PDA, digital cameras, thermal printers, Ham Radios, weather stations and much more. This adapter also allows you to add a serial port and monitor the status of your connections by using LED activity flashes. When connection activity is present, the LED’s will flash letting you know you have signal on the pins.
- LED activity monitoring
- Full support of RS-232 signals
- USB bus powered
- 5ft. Cable connection
LED Activity Monitor provides individual status LEDs for GND, DTR, TXD, RXD DCD, RI, CTS, RTS, and DSR.
The GM-FTDI-LED supports Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, and Windows 10 as well as Linux, and Mac OS 10.X.

Needed to program a universal remote (URC MX-800, also should work with all other variants like MX-600, MX-700, etc). *The default latency was set to 16ms which made it not communicate with my equipment properly, but setting it to 1ms in device manager solved it.
LED's are nice and useful, you can see which lanes/pins are actively receiving or transmitting.
Material of the case is good.
Two things that could make this even more perfect in my humble opinion.
Make the cable the same color as the case (smoke colored). As it is, it looks like something from 2003 or so with its see-through cable and being able to see the sheilding.
Second, if they could somehow add a opaque piece of plastic between each LED so the light doesnt bleed into the holes next to it, it would look so much more nice looking and easier to read the LEDs.

Should see something within syslog similar to the following:

I took the old FTDI one and used it on a Linux test system as W10 would not see it anymore. Waste not, want not.
Oh, the added bonus of lights really helps. This is great to see that your really sending [or receiving data]. The other nice part is the RTC/CTS/DTR lights in case you need hardware flow control. Good unit, I really like it. It's now part of my Laptop travel bag.
I got this to connect my SU1400 UPS to my PC (and its 'Powerchute' B.E. V9.2 software). So far it works fine under Windows 7 64-bit.
(I had an old Keyspan USA-19HS TI based adapter that seemed to work at first, but somehow actually hung my PC when waking from hybrid sleep...I assume related to the older drivers it used).
When I first connected the Gearmo to my PC, it loaded some older (2010) drivers from the internet and came up as COM3. This initially seemed o.k., but when my PC woke from sleep the UPS software had lost connectivity.
I then loaded the latest FTDI drivers (2.12.26 from the FTDI website) using the EXE version. This somehow then came up as COM5.
But, after I adjusted the settings back to COM3 (which it thought was still in use), things have worked o.k. since. It even comes out of sleep without an issue (and resumes communication).
The lights conveniently let me know when it's working. Pretty neat.
